Thanks, I didn't think there were many 02 R53s with fewer miles on it than mine, so I guess congrats are in order?? Hope you get to put some fun  miles on this driving season.

Married to my Mini at this point, very happily. How many miles on your R53? I have an 02 that is used for around 10 track days/year and some spirited road driving. Only has 60k on the odometer. Wondering when I should do a supercharger service on it...it still produces 17 pounds of boost on the track. Some very shiny parts you got in those pix! Nice!

I just smile and say its a mini thing lol

NME7667 should be the correct replacement for the R53 built in 01/2002.

I'm sure you realize this, but you know way more about the car than anybody at the dealership!

Sounds like a running change during the model year. Take you VIN # to the dealer and have them find the correct mount.
